This nozzle offers a choice in spray patterns; find the right one for every task in the home and garden. The soft touch dial guard makes it easy to select patterns even when wet. To modify water pressure, a flow control knob allows a quick adjustment to the flow of water without going back to the faucet. A lock-on clip on the front trigger holds it in place, allowing continuous water flow which helps reduce hand fatigue. The extra length is great for watering those hard to reach areas around the yard without having to stretch or stoop. The ratcheting head quickly changes direction of the water spray. The trigger is contoured for a non-slip grasp and added comfort.
